Not really. At least not for OTA. If you have the Sensar III, it can benefit from the addition of the wingman attachment.

X2. The Sensar is the best there is.

The King Jack is what we have on our new Georgetown motorhome and it works way better than any batwing I have had.

I had a crank up Sensar with the Wingman attachment on my Wildcat. The Wingman was great at pulling in channels but, due to the antenna placement on the roof, it hung over the side about 6" when retracted for travel. It finally got snagged on a low branch and the Wingman was forcibly removed. The antenna wasn't the same without the Wingman.
I replaced the Sensar head with a Jack antenna head and it works about the same as the Sensar+Wingman combo but it's half the size. The install took 2 min since it just replaces the head and keeps the Sensar crank up mechanism.

Our RV came with the Sensar III. After about 3 months of use I installed the wingman. The Wingman made a huge difference, still using the combo today with no plans on replacing it.
